Some endorsements from our collaborators and comments from the wider public….
“The brief for our Co Lab students was to plan and design a new interior for our Youth Club. They have set about the task, asking leaders, volunteers and members for their thoughts and produced a vision which both they and us, are so proud. An excellent partnership.”
– Trevor Franklin, Club Secretary, The Stonehouse Gang
“For prospective students interested in learning how to practice and design architecture, this is a school worth investigating. The program is structured precisely to help students achieve that balance.”
– ArchDaily article on BSoA and Co.lab.
“A creative energy and inspirational thinking reflecting the very special opportunities of the place leading to beautiful design and construction, all supported by a commitment to raise funding and include local community organisations.”
– Rosemary Coyne, Friends of the Hayes
“Working with Co.Lab on the Flatpack Palais was a pleasure from start to finish. We were really impressed by the quality and range of the students’ ideas, and then by their commitment in seeing these designs through to a finished product which provided a stand-out highlight of the festival as a whole. This will be a difficult project to top in the future! Particular thanks for the skill and enthusiasm in steering the process.”
– Ian Francis, Festival Director, Flatpack Festival
